Mortality leads from acute and mental health NHS Trusts in Yorkshire and Humber

How the network started

A regional mortality steering group was set up in 2013 to shape the Yorkshire and Humber Mortality programme in a ‘bottom-up’ approach. The group has continued to meet quarterly providing a platform for regional mortality leads from our 13 acute and 5 mental health Trusts to share the learning and challenges faced at an individual trust level whilst embedding a standardised mortality review method. This also allows trusts to find common solutions to problems and share good practise more widely across the region.
